Emmy Awards

It’s been done, votes have been cast by shady individuals, and the winners are crowned. As with every year, there’s a lot I agree with, and there’s a lot I just can’t get my head around. Here’s what I think:

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series:
Extras • HBO • BBC and HBO Entertainment
Ricky Gervais as Andy Millman

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series
Boston Legal • ABC • David E. Kelley Productions in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television
James Spader as Alan Shore

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series
Brothers & Sisters • ABC • ABC Studios
Sally Field as Nora Walker

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series
Lost • ABC • ABC Studios
Terry O’Quinn as John Locke

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series
My Name Is Earl • NBC • Amigos de Garcia Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television
Jaime Pressly as Joy Turner

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series
Grey’s Anatomy • ABC • ABC Studios
Katherine Heigl as Isobel ‘Izzie’ Stevens

You can see why I agree with those, all receiving praise in my previous TV reviews, but it’s a short list. Which means, there’s a lot I don’t agree with. Extras was snubbed two other awards, and so was Weeds. Battlestar Galactica, Boston Legal, Heroes, Lost and Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip should’ve won some more too (though they were up against each other for Drama Series). And I still scratch my head, wondering how an awful show as 30 Rock can win the Comedy Series award. Also wondering why there’s a reality show category.
But hurting most of all, is that The Colbert Report missed out on THREE awards. One taken by his Jew rival, Jon Stewart, but no less than TWO were handed over to Tony Bennett ! With last year’s fiasco (losing against another singer, Barry Manilow) still fresh on his mind, Stephen will probably cry his eyes out on-air for a whole week.
